How to Fix Connection Insecure Warning
« on: June 15, 2018, 09:11:41 AM »
When visiting my website, users see the warning symbol by the URL, and if they click on it, they get his message:



How can I fix that on my Wordpress.com site?

Thanks.

Typically you have an image on the page using http:// instead of https://.

Edit: yeah, you have a bunch of http://imgur.com images.

I don't know who provides your hosting, but I think that most web hosts now have the software to make your site secure. To exploit it, visitors must get there through an url beginning https:// instead of the old http://, so ensure that your pointers (and all links on that page) read https://.
